Tonight, Tuesday, Jan 3rd, at 7pm Javier Rosa from Tekla Labs will be presenting at FUBAR. Anyone is welcome to attend. Click here for parking and directions.
From Javier Rosa:
Tekla Labs will be announcing a 3D Printer Design Competition at FUBAR
labs. Some of the designs already produced by us and affiliates will
be presented. I will demonstrate the Cell-Scope, a cell-phone based
microscope constructed of 3D printed parts as well as off-the-shelf
components, and a centrifuge built from an egg-beater! More plans and
information are available at: http://teklalabs.org/ and more
information about the Cell-Scope is available here:
http://cellscope.berkeley.edu/. Note that the competition hasn't been
announced on our website yet so FUBAR will likely be the first outside
group to hear about it.
Tekla Labs is a University of California student run organization
whose goal is to address the needs of researchers in developing
countries in need of quality lab equipment. Tekla Labs is developing
the plans necessary to build and test this equipment out of commonly
available local materials or cheaply imported materials. Though in its
early stage, Tekla Labs has already generated excitement from
laboratories in such diverse places as Egypt and Panama.
